on hold the nomination of john brennan to serve as director of the c.i.a. that's also why i voted to not end debate on the hagel nomination. i do not believe senator hagel has adequately explained his activities in their financing since he left the senate. what is he referring to specifically there? >> chuck hagel, former republican senator from nebraska, doesn't and didn't want to tell his former colleagues in the senate everything about where he got paid to speak pro-arab groups that he talked to that compound and complicate previous statements that he had made about the so-called jewish lobby, referring to the united states as connection to israel. for rand paul, this is extra tricky. this sounds a little confusing, but imagine this, the foreign policy of libertarian minded conservative republicans like rand paul has more in common with chuck hagel than it does with john mccain. they are opposed to intervention. they're in favor of cutting defense budgets as part of an overrecall reduction in government spending. so libertarians like the idea of chuck hagel, who wants to be par
. joining us now, mike baker, former cia covert operations officer. rejoining us once again, gordan chang, the author of, nuclear showdown, north korea takes on the world. mike you know through your experience as a cia officer officer the world is dangerous place. did it get more dangerous last night? >> whether they do something, launch another missile whatever it is they're doing, whether it succeeds or fails it becomes more dangerous because they're learning something else. one of the biggest dangers from the program that the north koreans are running the tech transfer that goes on. there is a very robust underground environment between the north korean, iranian, russian, pakistani scientists and in dealing of nuclear technology. i think that's a very, very dangerous element to this. jon: how do we stop that? >> well the problem is we have very little room left with north korea. we've almost, gotten to the point where we kind of learned to live with this problem and the danger there of course, there are certain people in the administration saying if we can do that with them, certainly
's also another issue with john brennan. do you think he should be the next cia director? >> well i think that's another issue and another position that is, you know, everybody's a little bit fuzzy on right now. i think you need to have more questions be answered on his nomination as well. so we'll see. bill: it appears the questions on brennan go directly to the u.s. policy on drones. we had rand paul on yesterday, the senator from kentucky. he is adamant that he will not allow brennan to go forward unless he answers a simple question. and that is, whether or not it is u.s. policy and u.s. law to use a drone over american skies and target americans here at home. what is your view on that? >> well, bottom line, i think senator paul has every right to have his questions answered. you're putting someone in a position in the cia that obviously is going to be making decisions that affect everyday americans not only here but abroad. he has that right to have those questions answered. we need to have a full disclosure from the administration as to what the policy is going to be. listen, i don't
considering nominations for new secretary of defense. a nominee for cia director. president's new white house chief of staff offered this reminder we live in a dangerous world. >> between john brennan, the cia director and chuck hagel as secretary of defense we want to make sure we have those guys sitting in the chairs working because i don't want there to be something missed because of this hang up here in washington. >> reporter: you won't see action this week due to the president's day recess but capitol hill sources say the hagel nomination will be likely taken up a week from tomorrow. jenna: we'll watch that, mike, thank you. >> reporter: thank you. jon: for more let's bring in byron york chief political correspondent for the "washington examiner" and fox news contributor. the ways of the senate can be confusing, byron but looks like the senators that voted to block the nomination to this point might not necessarily vote against the nomination when they come back in session? >> you're right. the hagel filibuster which started on thursday did not survive the sunday shows and the reason is
no bones about it over the weekend. he has threatened to block president obama's picks for cia director, john brennan and for defense secretary, chuck hagel unless the president provides more information on the september 2012 attack on our consulate in benghazi, libya. listen to this. >> how could they say after panetta and dempsey said it was a terrorist attack that night, how could the president say for two weeks after the attack it was the result of a video? how could susan rice come on to show to say there is no evidence of a terrorist attack when sick tear of defense and joint chiefs knew that that night? i think that was a misleading narrative three weeks before our election. >> he is hanging onto this in a big way. joining me, kt mcfarland, fox news security analyst . what do you think he is saying, kt? >> what he is talking about is the most significant part. and that is the president had nothing to do with this. that the secretary of defense and the chairman of joint chiefs of staff now said at the beginning of this attack american embassy under attack, american ambassador gone
a different take on this guy. you don't see him as some trained cia type guy we needed to fear to this extent. you think he was a bit of a bungler. what do you mean? >> well, megyn, when you look at his career in lapd you can certainly see that he bare had i had enough training on lapd and experience to ride in a police car by himself. he had problems in the academy from day one and we didn't see any of the-- or otherwise describe the problems he had in the academy and he had an accidental discharge with a firearm at the academy shot himself in the hand and two day suspension. we look at the videos of printing and he kind of looks like a dork. he doesn't feel comfortable with the weapons you can see it in the way he handles himself and they report his military experience. the unit he was in is basically a mobile communications unit in the navy and i'm sure he had exposure to weapons training just like anybody in the military does, but when you look at his manifesto you'd swear you were up against 007, jason bourne, rambo, and that isn't the case. and he wasn't a highly trained lapd officer. h
to ask. >> so the nominations of chuck haig toll be defense secretary and john brennan to head the cia both hanging in the balance now which the white house says is a grave concern. >> between john brennan, cea director and chuck hagel as secretary of defense we want to make sure that we have those guys sitting in the chairs working because i don't want there to have been something missed because of this hangup here in washington. >> and congress now in recess for the president's day holiday. shannon? >> shannon: steve, thank you very much. >> you bet. >> shannon: there is no sign of any deal to avoid the automatic across-the-board budget cuts known as sequestration. one of the agencies that would be hardest hit by this, of course, is the pentagon. outgoing defense secretary leon panetta says it would be devastating to the military. joining us to talk about that and more retired four star general and former vice chief of staff to the army general jack keene. good to see you. thanks for coming in. what is your take on sequestration. there was heated back and forth on the hill between la
of the department of defense, and the head of the cia, john brennan, they are in a stalemate here. we have just written what looks to be a death nell for the nomination of chuck hagel, if indeed all that-- >> and if it holds up. and the thing is, but the president renominating these two, that, that is not extra-legal. this is what should have happened the first time he nominates them, they get a hearing, you know, it's fine. the republicans are never going to like his pick for the nlrb and the democrats are never going it like the republican president's pick for the nlrb. but this is going the way it always should have gone and they'll get their hearing, right? is there a problem with him renominating the same controversial people. they were so controversial, he decided to give them recess appointments the first time. >> they have participated in what has been unlawful, work on the nlrb. >> well, that wasn't their fault. >> of course it is. >> megyn: no it isn't. the president says trust me, i can do the appointment and you do your work. >> if the president says and the court says-- >> even tho
the story wrong initially. given the fact that is the cia, department of defense and their own embassy knew there were a terrorist attack and telling another story far too long. number two if the state department would admit they did not have appropriate security there despite a deteriorating security situation and that, they were responsible for the lack of protection there. and finally, even the dod, bill, the fact is, that the dod understands threats. they knew that situation was deteriorating. they were much aware of it. the ambassador himself said they couldn't sustain an attack. the do do. d could have -- dod could repositions forces and put forces on alert. call the state department. here's what we got. we understand what our forces can do and can't do, can we help? none of that was done. i don't think it is sufficient to stay the state department never asked. if that kind of accountability was out there, i think the story goes away. bill: kt, what do you make of that? how much does it bother you that we still do not have a full accounting what the president did that night? we know h
a mentor who was in the seals and who went on to the c.i.a., who got a call two hours after the raid from some high government official saying it was your guy. >>steve: it's the guy that you talked to and you spent a lot of time hearing his story. why is he coming out right now, phil? >> well, i think -- the story evolved over time. it was really a story talking about his experiences. it became clear to me that he's guys are tough, resill kwrapbt, resource -- resilient, all sorts of things. but they are portrayed as super human as opposed to human with great skills. i wanted to portray through this guy, this group of guys who do all the extraordinary things they are asked to do by the government, by all of us to keep us safe and secure and at the same time talk about the kind of support they're not getting from the government, frankly, and the private sector. >>brian: they don't do it for the money. they don't do it for the fame. they don't feel comfortable receiving it. but in any of these guys on that mission, i imagine, would have pulled the trigger had they been in that spot. what you
